. >> while they are still counts voting in florida -- [inaudible] >> [inaudible] >> it's not on? oh, there's a greener light. i apologize. [laughter] i saw the green light, too subtle for me, but i hope we're on now. here's what we know. we certainly know the president was re-elected, democrats picked up seats in the senate, which is contrary to what anybody in washington, i think, thought, even as late as labor day. we know the house is going to stay roughly the same. absent breaking news, i bring you no precinct returns from florida. i'd like to spend more time on why this is happened, and what that means for us going forward. first, i share the admiration all around for president obama's campaign team. they were tech nickically close to perfect in the first responsibility of a campaign team, that is to identify and turn out voters. they planned it. they executed it. every step of the way, they knew what votes they needed, got out and got them. they began weeks before election day banking favorable votes in states where they had already had people on the ground preplabbed to produce. aga
for ohio and florida so the lgbt support for obama is bigger in both ohio and florida bandit is winning margin so you can credibly argue that vote mattered a lot and if you think about an election where obama loses ohio and florida, you start to think about a very different election. and then i looked at polls and said what if romney and obama had more -- the lgbt vote was 76 obama, 20 to two romney and quite frankly it has been about that -- it's been roughly 3-1. obama, that's the highest it's been quite frankly it's been high all through. but what if they split more or less evenly over romney got a little bit more? if romney had 151% of the lgbt vote he would have won ohio, florida and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the presidency. so, in florida all he had to do was win a little over a third of the lgbt vote to win those states. so, while i don't think that -- in the way that we are not talking about immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy on, i don't think it's quite that level of impact but a little bit of movement in the
discussed in the media, you have to look at the next agenda and you have to look at ohio and florida. if romney, if lightning were to strike and romney were to carry all three of the states than he is very much in the game to win the election. is on the other hand, if obama were to carry at least two of those three states then i believe romney cannot win the election. if romney carries two and obama carries one of those three states and we will be up late at night watching the electoral college to see how things turn out. i'm not sure that this election has to drag on until the wee hours. i think we may have a good indication by the midnight at least as to where we stand, depending on what happens in those three states. >> you have absentee voting and they don't report that early in those places. >> i don't know how it is because the elections are not run by the government. in texas the absentee voting is reported at 7:00 p.m.. those are the first results. >> erlang foti -- [inaudible] they voted over a year ago. [laughter] >> i am talking about the mailed ballot absentees and the ab
and hercules. components that are all built in florida. he even voted against body armor for troops our troops on the frontline of the war on terror. john kerry's record on national security is troubling. >> it is the same exact ad. the ads are more targeted these days. this is the florida version of that advertisement. all of the focus these days on swing states and targeting the swing states. it is the same identical message. this is something i'm not very proud of the, but what i found out recently was we did an event in 2008. mark mckinnon was one of the guest speakers and he created ads for the bush campaign in 2004. he said that he was actually a fan of this website and he knew about this website and he would look at it to try to get ideas and go back to a past campaign. so i will give you an example of an advertisement. and i'm not saying this proudly. but it was interesting to me to learn this. when we think about the reagan outcome we can do this norman rockwell series of positive ads that make people feel good about the way america was coming back. this ad was actually very effective
their campuses safer. states from california to florida have introduced legislation to make it clear that child abuse reporting is not only a moral duty, but it's the law. this is tremendous progress. laws strengthens, policies tightened, governance revisited, and institutions made safer, and our work continues. that brings us to today, on the brink of the one year anniversary, civil lawsuits, perjury trials, and we can expect more fallout to come. over the last year, we have learned much about ourselves, our many cultures, our values, and our vision. we're still working through some difficult issues, but the question remains where do we go from here? the answer can be found by returning to penn state's core mission -- teaching, research, and service. our bottom line is delivering an outstanding education to students. our students are our top priority. i repeat, our students are our top priority, and they are doing great things. for example, this year, our journalism students captured the national championship in the william randolff hurst journalism award. engineering students took top honors
's also striking that i think president obama won almost half the cuban vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70 # ,000 votes, and which, i think, reveals that the politics within the community may be changing significantly. again, this probably shouldn't have come as a great surprise or shock to those following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement and opening from the obama -- with cuba from the obama administration's point of view, i think, there's been important steps that were made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans making travel more flexible, but from the latin american perspective, there's a sense not much changed, and there's a hope that perhaps in the second term there may be more of a change moving forward. on the issue as well, we'd have to look carefully at the composition of the congress and pieces moving around. some new members of congress, some members of congress with important positions no longer homing them in the next couple o
would not answer yes or no. >> we do not have the authority. >> gentlelady from florida, ms. castor for five minutes. i'm sorry, nishikawa ski, welcome. >> i'm going to attempt to ask this question. this is for.or smith. in the aftermath of this tragedy, we have learned some troubling facts of the pharmacy and how it will look necc in the past and raises questions about whether the board was too close to necc and whether the board did enough to prevent conflicts of interest from effect to its decisions. so i wanted to ask you, dr. smith, one of the members of the board, i understand she is gone now. is that true? >> know, we've asked her to resign but she is declined. >> how long has she served on the board? >> i don't have that in front of me, but it has been several years. she was there in the previous administration. >> lettuce or affiliation with necc or its sister companies? >> she previously worked for necc -- i'm sorry, she started in the summer of 2004. she previously worked for necc and subsequently went to a company also owned by mr. katz. >> i understand she was vice pres
3025, mends 3232 and nelson of florida 3073. the presiding officer: is there objection? a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from oklahoma. mr. coburn: reserving the right to object, i find it highly ironic we just passed an amendment to protect the constitutional rights of americans and we have objection to protecting the second amendment rights of the veterans of this country. how in the world can we say the people who fight and defend for us through a social worker deemed incompetent to carry a gun, that ought to be on the basis of a danger to themselves or someone else and it ought to be adjudicated and we have senators objecting to protecting the rights of the people who defend us. and on that basis, the contrary nature of that pace it's of what we just did, i will object to any further unanimous consents on this bill until we have a vote to protect the rights of the people who defend this country. a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from new york. mr. schumer: mr. president, i just want to set the record straight. this is a -- thi
. they were french. they made wine. they had the good sense to land in florida in june the third of december massachusetts, but then they were wiped out by the spanish but the story was completely left out of textbooks for the most famous woman in america was taken captive by anand in 1865, march new hampshire. in the middle of the night she killed her capture, realized she could get a bounty for scalps, went back on the scalp them and made her way to boston where she was a. the first statute to an american woman, a permit statue shutter with a hatchet in one hand and scalps in the other. >> hurricanes and he is now believed to be one of the costliest natural disasters with insured losses estimated to be as much as $20 billion. we discussed the national flood insurance program and how the insurance companies are responding to sandy with an industry representative. this is a half-hour. postcode let me introduce you to john prible, vice president of the independent insurance agents and brokers of america. our topic is the national insurance program. mr. purple, this article was in "the wall st
in florida but is the past president in the university of wisconsin. and she said, you know, it was so much easier to roam the department which is huge the and the university of wisconsin because i had power there. i could do something. at a public university people don't understand this. we don't have any power. we are just tugboat captains and all that we can try to do is push and pull and persuade. so why was thinking about that together with some of the ones that have run into real problems it wasn't an accident what happened it wasn't just a failure of communication and the board. was about a structural difficulty about should the campus -- should it be free to do many different things and have a lot more dependence and set the tradition differently than the others? and the system saying no, you are abandoning us and this happened more it's probably no accident at the little liberal arts school but in oregon the president went a little further but got into exactly the same trouble. he said we should be unbalanced from the rest of the system and here is my idea how we will finance it. w
nurse in florida and became an episcopal priest, close to $100,000. she had to sell her house and she sold her car and took a vow of poverty to make it through that period. why not come up with better ways for people to say for this transition that so many more going through? there was another article in "the wall street journal" that describes the growing number of boomers who were tapping into the children's 529 accounts to go back to school, whether they were going from being an episcopal priest to a pediatric nurse and vice versa or some other combination. we have individual retirement accounts. i'd like to see individual purpose accounts where people save for their own transition and they don't have to go through their children's 529 account. at the policy level, why not take social security more flexible? why not enable people to take a year or two of social security in their 50's for example to go back to school or to do an encore fellowship or to do national service for a year and have people go to work and actuarially adjusted period on the other and? these are things that we
